Politico: Kerry Appointment Shows Obama Seeks To 'Save The World' With Climate-Change Deals

Gee, maybe one day we'll look back and realize that the advent of Barack Obama was the day "when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."  Politico, at least, apparently thinks so.

In an item today, Politico claimed that "Obama’s choice of John Kerry as the nation’s top diplomat is the strongest signal to the international community — and the smart set in Washington’s political class — that the president is truly committed to striking deals designed to save the world."  More after the jump.



Politico dubbed Kerry "Mr. Climate."  Move over, Al Gore.  That's what happens when Ozone Man sells out to the oil sheikhs. According to Politico, Kerry has been hyper-active on climate issues. Apparently immune to the irony, Politico reports that Kerry's "a regular at international conferences, once flying halfway around the globe to spend a few hours on the ground during U.N.-led talks in Bali, Indonesia."

John, John: Skype's your carbon-footprint friend!
